Our vision is to develop an internet search marketplace where both consumers and businesses get a FAIR GO online.
No more pay to win, no more hidden secret keyword algorithms, no more high school popularity contests, no more corporate controls, unrealistic expectations or financial barriers determining what local business gets to be found online.
The Streets Network is a business and community supported online network, where money does not give one business an advantage over another in regards to being found online.
As a consumer, on TSN you have more control than ever before of how you choose to find, interact and follow businesses online.
Version 1.0 of TSN was built in 1999 to give businesses and consumers and alternative to Yellow Pages Online and was a 2 person team. It did very well until Google started their own locally focused directory.
They eventually reduced rank / kicked out all competing local directories for a “better user experience” – cutting off traffic flow to bolster their own agenda.
Back in the day TSN had over 250,000 users / month in 73 major cities in the US and Australia. Traffic was mainly from Google and by removing local search engines, competitors and local directories from their results they effectively walled in Google users to their own view of the Internet.
The fight for fair exposure and economic equality online must continue. The goals and ideology of TSN are still essentially the same as way back in 1998, though currently I’m only one person.
FOR THE RECORD:
We belive that transparency in providing public and business services, is of utmost importance.
TSN needs your support and we hope you will share this page and tell other businesses to get on board if they want change.
We don’t want to become another big business problem with the web, we are here to be a solution.
COMMUNITY SUPPORT & FEEDBACK:
We hope you can see the need for what we are building, and have faith in this project. You can show your support by buying a listing for your business and providing feedback if you have time.
No more pay to win, no more hidden secret keyword algorithms, no more fake link popularity contests, no more corporate controls, no more financial barriers as to who gets to be seen and found on the Internet.
Thanks again for your support and we look forward to connecting with you on The Streets Network.
